Congrats to Andre Da Costa MVP? â Hereâs how to become one?

| Hereâs Andreâs comment which Joe Wilcox left 
| Microsoft Watch, obviously Microsoft thinks 
| this behaviour is the stuff of MVPâs:
|     I donât understand, if there is no Joe 
|     Wilcox on Microsoft Watch where will I go 
|     to argue against Linux fanatics? I find it 
|     therapeutic.
| You can see the MSwatch article here.
| It seems to me (if Andre is not the unwitting 
| victim of an April fools joke) that Microsoft 
| either hasnât researched its new MVP properly 
| or merely doesnât mind.  Does this to you 
| sound like MVP material?  After the Plurk 
| incident nothing would surprise me about 
| Microsoft.
| Take the time to research Andreâs posting.  It 
| seems the only rule you need to follow to get 
| one is âpromote, promote, promoteâ â by any 
| means necessary and you can look at some of 
| the Openbytes articles covering the behaviour 
| which Microsoft seems to deem worthy of an 
| MVP...
| [...]
| I think thats enough to get you started on the 
| well documented comments of Andre Da Costa.  
| If you are interested you can also see him 
| over at Twitter where his (known) handle is 
| Adacosta although after him admitting to 
| having more than one handle at Cnet, one could 
| be forgiven for thinking he has more than one 
| on Twitter.

| Thanks to everyone that participated in the campaign to nominate me for a C# MVP award,
